Hey everyone,

In the making of my Rubik's 2x2x4 review it popped. I've assembled most of it, but I find the last two pieces impossible to fit in, as they have to fit into three edges at one time. Any help?

Luke

maybe you should disassembled it and connect the extensions to the corners and assemble it as if it were a 2x2x2

I've assembled it, but I'm pretty sure a piece inside has broke. I'm just going to use it as decoration for now. I'll have to get another one shortly.

And the moral of the story is, don't even think about trying to speed solve or cut corners with a Rubik's brand product! :lol:

Recently my 2x2x3 broke *stares at monopoly* because a center piece broke, and I fixed it be putting in a screw and washer. Maybe you have a similar problem. Pictures would help.

Don't worry Darky, I had assembled it before you had posted it.

I'm not going to be showing pictures because I'm never going to disassemble it again. All I know is that I can hear something loose. Springs and washers won't do the trick as the centers are just slide on pieces, which are terrible for a puzzle like this. Dear God I hope Eastsheen or LanLan or Ghost Hand or someone whoes 2x2x2 are screw based will mass produce their own!

There's a recess with a screw in it, for assembly/disassembly. It's under one of the stickers on the non-extended pieces.

That's exactly like the centers of a 2x2x3, putting in screws/washers just keeps everything together.

I'm not going to be removing any stickers as it's signed by Hidetoshi. It's getting better, some sides even turn better then before, but I'll just buy another one in the near future.

If you can wait, may I take a movie to assemble it ?
Or, if you broke any pieces, please consult me. :)

Don't worry Hidetoshi, it's fixed. I just won't really be playing with it though as it's signed by you. I'll buy another one in the near future. But it seems to have made it a bit better actually (not that I'll be doing it to the next one I get! :D ).
